Chinglish vs. Americhina

As halfyuans climb near
The wall-e to celebrate
Freedamn newly gained
From the innernet
As well as from don’trains
We antizens find ourselves living
A livelihard and getting poor
In the stuckmarket

Full of niubility
Some renowned profartssors
Keep playing zhuangbility
By acting like tuhaos
Trying to sponsor foulsball

Meanwhile, many a gambller
From our goveruptioin has to
Prepay for his own corpspend
Like a real shability because they
Cannot remain emotionnormal
After breaking the harmany
As they receive canslsensorship
Or play suihide with their conscience

There are people mountain people sea
All yakshitting over there
You can you up; otherwise
No can no bb, since you know
Well: no zuo no die
